Theme park news and notes for Jan. 10

January 9, 2009, 6:01 PM ·
  • In my theme park trip planning piece this week, I noted that Disneyland was once again offering Southern Californians its 2fer ticket, two days at the two theme parks for the price of one. But I hadn't realized that Disney hadn't sent out the press release, publicly announcing this year's version of the deal.

    Disneyland did that today, so I guess we had a bit of a scoop there.

  • Legoland California sent a notice today which included word of Fairy Tale Brook's reopening after a revamp. Except, and I hadn't noticed this before, Legoland calls its ride revamps... (wait for it) "plastic surgery."

    I love Legoland's attitude.

  • Scott Joseph blogged about Thursday's death of french chef Gaston Lenotre. Why is this of note to theme park fans? Because Lenotre was one of the three "Chefs de France" who owned that restaurant in the France pavilion at Walt Disney World's Epcot. Joseph's piece includes some worthy anecdotes.

Did they bring the mist at the entrance below Peter Pan, and the mist after the Aladdin cave back? Does the troll rock the bridge again like he used to? It would be great to get an update as to what the 'plastic surgery' entailed.
